As the biggest jackpot of the year so far, Australians were excited for the $60 Million Powerball draw 1338 this Thursday 6 January 2022. Incredibly, the jackpot was won by a single entry. The $60 Million Powerball winner is a Brisbane man who is now coming to terms with starting the new year as a multi-millionaire!
It took a few missed calls from lottery officials before the man answered his phone the night of the draw. Like many winners, he was cautious of the call and didn’t believe what he was hearing. Fortunately, he was able to confirm his ticket results and share the incredible moment of learning he has won $60 Million!
“I think anyone who gets hit with this info would think it’s surreal. It’s just unbelievable. I know you’ve confirmed it, but initially when I saw this… I thought this has to be a gee up or a glitch in the system.”
The man purchased his 36-game QuickPick ticket online and despite entering to win he admitted, “you always daydream, but you never really expect it to happen. It’s a lottery after all!”
It’s safe to say the $60 Million winner is a firm believer of the age old saying, “you have to be in it to win it!”
The now multi-millionaire was still processing how he planned to use the prize money. He revealed he still plans to show up to work this year. However, he was thrilled to think about the ways he could use the winnings and help others.
““It’s a lot to think about now. I know the money will help a lot of people. I can buy my first house, help family and friends and have plenty of holidays.”
Congratulations to the $60 Million Powerball winner!
